Alvirah, the former cleaning lady who struck it rich in the lottery, made her first appearance in Weep No More, My Lady. Now, with her devoted mate, Willy, the ever-resourceful Alvirah delves into crime-solving on a grand scale - and with her own inimitable style. Among their many adventures, Alvirah and Willy find a dead actress in their Central Park South condominium upon their return from London in "The Body in the Closet."
Needing a break from the big city, they escape to Cape Cod - only to meet a would-be heiress framed for murder in "Death on the Cape." When Alvirah and Willy seek the tranquillity of the Cypress Point Spa, it's the perfect getaway - until a jewel thief turns up in "The Lottery Winner." Back in Manhattan, the search for a neighbor's missing newborn makes for a suspense-filled Christmas in "Bye, Baby Bunting."

With little time to enjoy a story, this book was great, as we could do it in peices, and complete a story. and then wait for the next story.
each with a good plot of its own.
In all fairness I have only listened to about 6 audio books. The Lottery Winner falls in the above average slot.
I loved her realistic New York voice.
No, I wanted to enjoy it longer.
As always, Mary Higgins Clark serves up Willie and Elvira they way you want them, like a nice hot Mac n Cheese you eat on a cold winter day. The stories might be about solving mysteries but in the enc you always feel good.
You can imagine while Jean Stapleton reads that you are in NY or on the Cape as her voice lends so much to the characters.
Absolutley, even though it was 3 short stories that could be listened to in parts, any one stands on it's own.
Great narration on the Mary Higgins Clark Mystery novel the lottery winner. I enjoyed how it was several stories about Elvirah and Willy as they use their lottery winnings and influence to help people in need.
